ITE Workgroup 2nd Annual Meeting
The ITE Workgroup Second Annual Meeting
In September 2019, over 200 interpreters and translators from across the United States gathered and voted to launch a national effort to professionalize interpreting and translation in education. Join us to learn about progress made and to be part of this national effort!

The ITE Workgroup is very pleased to announce the creation of a best practices document for remote interpreting in educational settings. 

The COVID-19 pandemic has meant that all educational services have had to make an overnight switch to remote communications. 

1 in 5 Americans report speaking a language other than English at home. They cannot be left out of the criticial communications between schools and families.

This document is one way we want to support schools and their hard-working linguists as they learn how to communicate over telephonic and video platforms. Download, use and share widely!


The time is now to professionalize educational interpreting and translation! Consider joining the ITE Steering Committee to create a national code of ethics for educational interpreters and translators.


The ITE Workgroup held an inaugural meeting with national representation in September 27, 2019. The results of this meeting form the basis for our current effort to launch a national steering committee to create a code of ethics for educational interpreting and translation.



The Interpreting and Translation in Education Workgroup formed organically during the summer of 2019. A group of interested people helped launch the effort to professionalize interpreters and translators in educational settings. Learn more about our origins.

About the Interpreting and Translation in Education Workgroup

The ITE Workgroup is a group of individuals interested in professionalizing interpreters and translators in education. We seek to launch a national conversation to build momentum towards the creation of a formal process for creating ethics and standards for educational interpreters and translators. There are several ways you can get involved!

Our Latest Events

The ITE Workgroup is looking to kickstart a national conversation on creating a code of ethics for education interpreting and translation. 

Following the guidance received during our inaugural meeting in September 2019, the next step is to convene a nation-wide steering committee to get down to work. 

We invite you to explore our site and get involved, either by becoming part of the national steering committee, joining our listserve or following us on social media.
